As a young man, Lloyd helped raise cows on his family
farm, did some farming and he also had his own very special
horse. He used to coon hunt and still enjoys an occasional
outing to deer hunt.
He works very hard every single day. In raising animals
they do not get days off.
Tami was raised on a horse farm. Her family raised and
showed palomino quarter horses.
She was active in 4-H and FFA as a youth. After 4-H she
did some leadership positions.
Lloyd & Tami developed their own farm and grew to
top competitor's in the quarter horse arena.
They raised, trained, and showed quarter horses for many
years along with raising
pembroke welsh corgi's. They have always had a very full
In 1990 they decided to add other types of animals to
their farm - first came a llama.
Yes, one llama and who could think you can own just one?
Well, that one llama was not lonely for very long.
Soon came another and another, and yet another.
Those were the days when investing in llamas (yes investing)
was no small venture.
They had to put a second mortgage on the farm to get their
first 3 female llamas...
ah, for the love of llamas! Today they are proud to say
they are thoroughly llama junkies!
Next came the fainting goats. Tami fell in love with these
little goats when she met
a gentleman from Alabama and he shared with her about
these rare little goats.
They knew they wanted to add goats to the farm, but were
looking into another breed
of goats when they were quickly intrigued by, and drawn
to these fainters.
Especially the fact they are not escape artists and do
not climb and jump.
During all of this time it was a dream to own zebras...could
we actually own a zebra?
Sure they could, and soon their farm became home to three
Through the years they also raised reindeer, miniature
zebu cattle, african serval cats,
african pygmy hedgehogs, various breeds of rabbits, miniature
horses, and manx cats.
To look back they often wonder how they ever did some
of the things they have done.
Today they specialize only in raising top quality Llamas,
M iniature and Toy Australian Shepherds.
They understand the great deal of responsibility that
lies within the pairing of two special
animals, the anticipated birth, and always caring for
them the best way you can.
Tami is also a certified Llama and Alpaca Judge and Fleece
She also Judges local 4-H llama shows, and is a Certifiec
Clinic Instructor and Teaching Judge.
She helps with 4-H Clinic Instruction as well.
